Great ice in the Alps

The recent dry and cold conditions in the Alps have been perfect for ice conditions, as you can see from Andy’s photo from his Winter Intro course. The long range forecast is looking settled and cold for at least the next ten days to two weeks, so if you are planning a last minute trip to the Alps, then now’s the time to come! We have had groups on many of the Val de Cogne, Chamonix and Val Savaranches icefalls in the last few days. Classics such as Cold Couloir are very safe due to thin snow cover higher up, and have seen many ascents.
